15 Facts About Me

I thought that I would do another little introductory type post so that you can all learn a little more about me! I've seen many bloggers do a 'facts about me' post, so I thought I would also use this concept. Although, it has taken me a while to think of 15 random facts! So here it goes...

1. I live in Essex, England.

2. My favourite band are You Me At Six.

3. I used to belong to a dance team and was dancing from a very young age, we were even South East England champions!

4. I never completed college, I dropped out after two months and ended up going on to do an apprenticeship in web design.

5.  I once got stung by a jellyfish whilst I was on holiday in Menorca.

6. I have a dog called Sasha, she is a Labrador Husky cross and is extremely adorable.

7.  I suffer from anxiety and have done since I was roughly 10 or 11 years old.

8. The furthest I have ever travelled is to New York, I even bought my prom dress whilst I was over there!

9. I have danced in the famous Her Majesty's Theatre in London.

10. It took six times for me to pass my driving test (my nerves always got the better of me!)

11. My middle name is Leigh because if I was a boy, I was going to be called Lee.

12. An obsession of mine is the TV show 'Friends.' I have probably seen each episode at least 50 times each and regularly annoy my family & friends by quoting it.

13. I once painted myself gold and went as a Golden Ticket to a Charlie & The Chocolate Factory themed party.

14. The two main talents that I wish I possess is to be able to sing and to play the guitar.

15. 'Elf' is one of my favourite films and me and my family watch it every Christmas, it is like a tradition!

"I wish that I could inspire someone with words. I wish that I could make somebody smile, or laugh, or cry just by using my imagination. Authors, poets and songwriters possess the most amazing talents. They have the ability to make us emote, to bring all of our feelings to the surface. I love lyrics and how their meanings can be so thought provoking, with everybody interpreting them in completely different ways. Songs can hold many types of significance, triggering memories within our minds. Whether they take us back to a happy or sad moment in our lives, it’s incredible how real it feels. Like you have travelled back in time and in that moment, you are present once again. All of the feelings you experienced before come rushing back like a gigantic wave, a tsunami of emotion. No matter how many times you listen to the same song in your lifetime, the lyrics will hold a different meaning for you every time - depending on what is going on in your life. That is the beauty of words, they will forever be evolving. Words are beautiful, we should never forget that."


Hello and welcome to my blog! At this current moment in time I have no followers, so this 'hello' post is for my followers in the very near future (I hope!)

To introduce myself, my name is Michaela and I am brand new to Blogger. I am very excited about getting the ball rolling with this. The majority of my posts will be about fashion & beauty, music and any other random thoughts I have. As a lover of Tumblr, I thought it was about time that I shifted over to Blogger, where there is a lot more freedom and blog customisation. I will probably by changing the layout and bit and bobs over the coming weeks to get my page looking exactly as I want it, so it is very much a work in progress at the moment! I have also signed up to Blog Lovin', so I would love it if you could follow me on there also!

I hope you all enjoy what my blog has to offer :)
